Having spent the past year in Australia, I have been looking into options to moving out there. I was told that family could not sponsor me. I am in my first year of the OU studying a degree for Business & Management. Since 2005 I have worked for IT companies within the Finance and Sales departments. I still don't qualify for enough points. What more can I do?!
Hi Sara and welcome 🖐️
It's not an easy ride, unfortunately. When you say you don't have enough points. How many are you hitting?
Current points test here: https://gettingdownunder.com/australian-migration-points-calculator/
The 482 Employer-sponsored visas could be an option for you, however, this is dependent on experience (as you'll ultimately be competing with other overseas candidates for the same jobs).
All the best
